IE 450 - Senior Cooperative Learning Experience

1 Credit Hours
Exposure to the real-world practice of industrial engineering. Seniors will be asked to lead teams that consist of seniors, juniors, and sophomores. These teams will be assigned a company or organization to study. The objectives are to develop leadership skills, teaming skills, and mentoring skills; and to provide the opportunity to apply and integrate course content in the industrial engineering curriculum in a real-world context. Students will be required to maintain a journal documenting their individual experiences and reflections, including any leadership issues that arose and how the student dealt with them, what the student has learned about effective team playing, the application of industrial engineering in a practical setting, and how the student used his/her knowledge and leadership skills to mentor junior and sophomore members of the team. Each team will work on a project for the organization or company assigned, scoping and defining some problem of interest, and recommending a solution methodology. These project reports will go into a problem bank that will be used by Industrial Engineering 422 as a source of topics for senior design projects.

Contact Hour Distribution: 2-hour lab.
